In this writing by Chiara Lubich from 1957, she gives us a “precious pearl”. She reveals the reason behind a life focused on one word that has infinite shades of meaning: “love”.
When one speaks of love, Lord, people often think of it as something that is always the same.
But how many kinds of love there are!
I remember that when I met you, I wasn’t worried about how to love you.
Perhaps because it was you who had met me, and you wanted to fill my heart.
I remember that sometimes I was all on fire, even though I felt the burden of my humanity as though I were carrying a heavy weight. But already at that time, your grace enabled me to understand a little who I was and who you were, and I saw that flame as your gift.
